Back to LA after living in Las Vegas. Home is where the heart is!

By Mia, published on Sep 22, 2006

... living is excellent. We rented a 2500 square foot, 5 bedroom home, in the beautiful, calming town of Summerlin for $1500.00 a month, which in itself can add to the likeability factor of residing in LV.

Did anyone get stabbed in your backyard?

Power outage in Santa Monica

By Ariel, published on Jul 23, 2006

The majority of the restaurants and stores of Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica were closed yesterday night due to an electrical fire that lead to a power outage yesterday at 5pm. This incident apparently caused by the excessive heat of the last days and the high power-usage blew two underground vaults. Manhole covers flew up in the air and 15 feet high flames could be seen coming out of them. Power should be restored in the whole area within 24 hours. (more)
